Description

WFLA-TV (Tampa, Fla.) "exposed the mistreatment of foster and shelter children by Florida's Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services. Despite state denials (the station) revealed the state ignored the legal rights of abused and neglected children." The investigation "showed HRS forced these kids to stay in state offices by day and sleep on office floors by night. A follow-up investigation revealed state workers denied children services, stole from taxpayers and blatantly broke the law."
